Ajax youngster tempted by move to Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have received a boost after Ajax youngster Christian Eriksen revealed he would be keen on making a move to the Etihad Stadium according to The Express.
There is expected to be a battle for Eriksen’s signature this summer with the midfielder looking likely to leave the Dutch giants in the coming months.
Eriksen’s contract expires at the end of next season and Ajax are keen to cash in on the player now rather than risk losing him for nothing in a year’s time.
A host of Premier League clubs are thought to be monitoring the player’s availability with Liverpool and Tottenham having been thought to be leading the chase for Eriksen’s signature.
But it now appears that Manchester City have stolen a march on their Premier League rivals as they look to enter the race for the player’s services.
The 21 year old midfielder revealed that his preferred move would be to either Manchester City or French giants Paris St Germain.
‘I’d like to play for a club like Manchester City or PSG,’ said Eriksen.
‘For me it is important that I have a good feeling at the club.
‘I should be able to play football and then I could develop. I will be a better football player.’
The Danish starlet has been in fine form for the Amsterdam side this season, netting an impressive nine goals as he has helped Ajax to the top of the Dutch Eredivisie.
Ajax are thought to be happy to allow Eriksen to leave as they have a ready made replacement in the form of Eriksen’s Danish compatriot Viktor Fischer.
